DERMATOLOGY

MEDICATED SHAMPOO ANTISEPTIC FOR DOGS AND CATS

ANTIMICROBIAL

ANTISEPTIC

CLEANSING

HEXADENE is an antimicrobial, antiseptic shampoo designated for use on dogs and cats on dermatological conditions responsive to chlorhexidine. HEXADENE, using SPHERULITES and chitosanide, represents a breakthrough in skin care technology.

SPHERULITES: an exclusive and patented encapsulation system developed by Allerderm, provides slow release of ingredients long after the shampoo is rinsed off.

Chitosanide: a natural biopolymer creates a protective film on the skin and hair. This technology reinforces the antimicrobial and antiseptic properties of the formulation.

Uses

HEXADENE is a gentle, antimicrobial and antiseptic shampoo for use in dogs and cats of any age.

Contains

Chlorhexidine gluconate 3% in a shampoo base containing water, lauryl glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine, Spherulites, chitosanide and lactic acid. Chitosanide, chlorhexidine gluconate and lactic acid are present in free forms. Chlorhexidine acetate is present in encapsulated (Spherulites) form. May contain sodium hydroxide and sodium chloride.

Directions

Shake well before use. Wet the coat with warm water and apply sufficient shampoo to create a rich lather. Massage HEXADENE into wet coat, lather freely. Rinse and repeat. Allow to remain on hair for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

Frequency of use: initially two to three times a week for four weeks, then reducing to once a week, or as directed by your veterinarian.

Warning

Keep out of reach of children.
